New Restaurant Coming to Epcot’s Japan Pavilion

Posted on
Today the Disney Parks Blog announced that an all-new table service restaurant will be coming to the Japan Pavilion in World Showcase. The restaurant will be a signature dining experience inspired by the natural beauty of Japan. The setting will draw from both nature and takumi, which means "artisan" in Japanese, and the relationship between Japanese craftsmanship and the natural world will be evident throughout the space. The as-yet unnamed restaurant will be operated by Mitsukoshi USA, which currently operates the merchandise, restaurants (Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining), and kiosks in the Japan Pavilion. No further construction details or planned opening date have been announced.
